Baby it's cold outside!

Ok, not really since I live in Dallas. It's probably actually still 40 degrees outside. But that's cold to me! It's rainy and dreary and dark. Yesterday was my birthday, and I had a great day. I got a Cameo! WOOT. It's sitting here staring at me on my table.

Anyway, to celebrate my birthday with my lovely blog friends, I'm giving away something you might be interested in. Since it's so cold outside....I'm giving away.....
Peachy Keen Stamps Winter Face Assortment Set! This set is so cute. Funny, when I went to find the image of the stamp set on the PKS site, I found my project I made a longggggggg time ago, but still one of my favorites. I used this stamp set for the Gingerbread's face.
So many great memories designing for Peachy Keen Stamps. Speaking of that, did you hear they are having an OPEN DESIGN TEAM CALL? Yep, it's true. I know MANY crafters have dreamed of being on their design team, so now is your chance. You can do this. Please please please don't say "I'll never get chosen." Cause how do you know? You don't. So give it a try! It's a great challenge. You all know how I advocate challenging yourself. You can find all the details on their blog HERE

So back to the giveaway.....just a leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing about DECEMBER (other than my birthday of course) and I will pick a random winner next Friday, December 9. 

I made a little tag yesterday in front of the fire with lots of Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Unity Stamp love.
Just to add to my little stash. I love embossing that reindeer, it looks soooooo pretty in real life.

Have a great day!
Lots of love.

Happy birthday! I have several favorite things about December. Winter break is probably my most favorite as both of my kids are home from college for the holidays and we get to spend time together. I also love that the weather finally cools down, a big plus in my book!

~ Creating a Crafty Life ~ said...

LOVE the PKS stamps! What I love about December is how people take time and come together. They find time they normally wouldn't set aside and reconnect with the people who love them the most. I also love all the Holiday Decor too ;) Happy Birthday to you Chickadee ♥

Happy Birthday!!! My son and his wife live in Dallas too, and they were just talking about how it's getting pretty chilly down there. That's okay though...it wouldn't feel as Christmassy otherwise!

I pretty much love everything about December...the Christmas lights that start popping up everywhere, the cooler temps, being able to sit by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate (EXTRA marshmallows!) I just love the whole month!

Thanks for the chance to win such a cute PKS set. I LOVE snowmen, so I've had my eye on this one for a while!

My favorite thing about December is probably our tradition of kicking off a month of fun family activities (advent calendars, baking, shopping, sponsoring a needy family, traveling, spending time with friends & family...) by playing Christmas music, sipping hot cocoa, and decorating the Christmas tree!!!!!!!!!

Debby said...

First off Happy Birthday! My favorite thing about Christmas is (was) when my dad was still alive and we would have my parents over on Christmas eve and just have Christmas with them and my kids and hubby and I. I don't think my mom is coming this year, which would still thrill me to death. But that is what made my Christmas was for my kids to have Christmas Eve, with Grandma and Grandpa. We have wonderful memories of having dinner with them, opening gifts and we always watched Mom and Dads favorite movies which is also some of ours and that was the Ma and Pa Kettle Series, I have them all but one. We always had so much fun, I will always have those special memories and so will my children.
Thanks for the chance at the stamps, love this set and unable to afford them myself.
